Rugby Training Mistakes: Training Like A Bodybuilder

hahaha, definitely plenty of logic. I was taking the piss, I do train all over.

I think muscle specific exercises on machines have their place also, especially as examples of what muscle you're training as you can replicate the movement with free weights at another time... but as you said, the movement created on a machine will be extremely unlikely to happen on a pitch....

James Haskell humble after smashing tackle on David Pocock

Exactly, just like CJ Stander, jumping for that ball in the air and having some little fly half try and leave a face imprint on Standers arse cheek!

CJ Stander banned for 1 week after red card for knocking out Pat Lambie

So what you're saying is, CJ Stander should have jumped, hit Lambie then fallen on his head and neck and so Lambie got sent off?

Because clearly here CJ is the one "going for the ball" and Lambie is the one kicking it away... so surely we must protect players in the air who are going for the ball?

So what you're suggesting is that players need to be more thoughtful with how they land after any contact in the air... i.e. it's worth risking yourself an injury by landing on your head when you jump for a ball.

I won't even justify* your late comment by suggesting that there is no such thing as a late charge down, the ball was in between Lambie and CJ when CJ jumped, if it had been behind CJ when he jumped then I'd say it was an utterly pointless jump and could be ruled as a late charge, or late contact... but it wasn't, so he had every right to compete for it........*ooops... I just did...

The Chiefs score six tries to thump Wales in midweek match

Agreed. I don't know much about this game and I'm also not a Welsh supporter, but I'd chalk this down as an embarrassing loss for the Welsh jersey...

Courageous Ireland beat Springboks in South Africa for first time ever

Hahaha, that is passion for you I suppose....

In some ways it's a positive passion, the French it would appear just throw their hands up in the air, tossing onions and garlic left and right, tip their bag of snails on the floor and storm off shouting merde... and wait for the team to pick itself up.. I think it England I get the impression fans just turn around and go "yeh well, whats ******* new?!?! we're doing **** and we always will!" (when they do badly this is!)

Interesting point regarding the lacklustre in the bok ranks - a few of us had a small discussion re etzebeth and his abilities during the Etzebeth and de Jager tumble, and it really hit home how much of a sheep Eben is... he's young so perhaps thats the excuse, but de Jager has a head on him and Eben looks like he needs to be pointed at something and told to go... so when heads drop, he looks lost..

It does create a sort of loophole though... We both saw different things, the first thing I saw was that Pococks feet weren't on the ground as he had jumped to catch the ball, and rather than taking the cynicism you turned it on it's head and said this could be deemed jumping into the tackle... so the loophole could be literally jumping to catch every ball passed... if you get it wrong you get smashed, but get it right and it's a penalty everytime... if referees weren't a tad more sensible than that...
